Woody & Ted: "Channeling Woody"
Posted: Thursday September 8th, 2005 by

Every once in a while, my girlfriend will walk through the door and issue forth the phrase "I brought you presents". Now, this can be anything ranging from a bag of Swedish Fish to a box of Legos. This time, it was a handful of games: Darkwatch for the XBox and Death Jr. and Namco Museum Battle Collection for the PSP.

I played Death Jr. for a while. I liked the graphics, but the game play suffered considerably due to a terribly scripted camera. Then I put in Namco Museum and played around with the arcade games of my youth.

I'll be honest with you; when you're playing a game like Galaga on the PSP, where the faster you press the X button the faster you fire, you shake the device to the point that it's hard to be accurate. And there's something about the size of the screen that make it a tad be accurate in the first place. Fun sure. But, it did just seem the slightest bit humerous that I was sitting there playing such simple games on such a sophisticated device.

Today's Pimpage: I'm wearing a "Calling Home" shirt from Threadless.Com. If visit Threadless, please consider their "Regrowth: Katrina" shirt to support the cleanup and rebuilding effort in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
